Take a serious look at your current headshot. Does it look like you? Does it match your brand? Is it doing you and your company justice? If not, it’s time to cut it loose and replace it with one done right. Everyone needs a professional headshot: Executive portraits, business professionals, medical professionals, real estate agents, actors, models, authors, writers for a newspaper or magazines, you have a blog, or you want something for a dating site to college students about to start their careers with a resume. Set yourself apart from the crowd and invest in yourself and your career.
In today’s environment with social media, great headshots are more significant than ever. Professionally done headshots are so important that we built a web site dedicated just to headshots. Please visit Headshots Ohio by Chisolm Studios for additional information.

SFX – Photography with an artistic flare!
Some would call this “Hybrid” photography because it is of the blending of photography and art. We call it SFX. Using a select photograph we apply various unique special effects to it. We can also collage a number of these images into a distinctive large wall print. These can then be printed on canvas, metal or high quality photographic paper and hung on the wall and enjoyed for years to come. For a quick overview (just over a minute) please watch the video below.
